In year 2015 the Emmitsburg Lions Club is making available to high school seniors residing in its service district the Robert Gauss Sr. Memorial Scholarship.  

The Emmitsburg Lions Club service district includes the Emmitsburg Elementary School District and resident students in the 21727 zip code.  This scholarship is an award of $1,000 to be used by its recipient for his/her pursuit of college or other post high school education.

Candidates for this scholarship must follow the following procedural guidelines in assembling their application:
1. An essay must be submitted to the Emmitsburg Lions Scholarship Committee.  The essay should answer the following questions:
A. How has your life been enriched through activities of community service?
B. How do you intend to continue to serve your community after high school, through college, and beyond?
Applicants are encouraged to include information such as career goals, high school activities, non-school activities, volunteerism, and any other pertinent information in answering these two questions in their essay.
2. A signed cover letter must accompany the essay.  The letter shall contain information that will identify the applicant only to the Emmitsburg Lions Club Scholarship Committee Chairman, so that the judges will not know the names of the applicants when reading their essays.  Applicants should not put their name on their essays.  Their names should only appear on the accompanying cover letter.
